Your one-stop, one-shop dinner inspiration for the week ahead. We love that most of these meals make enough for lunch the next day too! 

Lentil pasta with leeks and shredded Brussels sprouts

Move over, wheat-based pastas! We’re loving the health benefits of Happy Earth People’s chickpea and lentil fusilli pastas – they’re made with nothing but 100% chickpeas and lentils respectively, so are fabulously high in protein, low GI and free from all grains, including wheat.

Pizza cones

Pizza, in the form of a cone, is officially a thing? What could be better than a pizza-dough cone filled with melty cheese and your favourite toppings (or, now, fillings)? We can report that, although a little unorthodox, pizza cones are a trend that is hard to beat – try making these a snack for the kids or for your next drinks party… they are ideal to eat with a glass of red wine in your other hand!

Old-fashioned English raised pork and chicken pie

There’s not really any way around this – this traditional pie takes a while to prepare; although there’s nothing difficult about it and most of the time it takes to make isn’t active prepping, but rather baking and cooling time. Make this when you have a few hours for leisurely pottering in your kitchen, and you’re in the mood for making something rewarding. I will say that the time spent is worth the final result!
